Charlotte 49ers fire volleyball coach Redding

Charlotte 49ers volleyball coach Chris Redding and his assistants have been fired, the school announced Monday afternoon.

Redding had a seven-season mark of 93-110 that included just one winning season (16-15 in 2010). The 49ers were 12-17 this past season, 2-12 in Conference USA.

Also released were assistant coaches Bethany Byers, Chad Esposito and Jay Correll.

Under Redding, the 49ers' volleyball program led the nation in two of the past four years in the Dig Pink cancer-awareness program. The 49ers were three-time recipients of the American Volleyball Coaches Association Team Academic Award under Redding.

Redding came to Charlotte from Florida, where he was an assistant. He was head coach at Appalachian State from 1999-2002.

How many years are left on his contract? and do we have to pay him if he becomes an assistant somewhere else?

Obviously a move because personality conflict. You can be subpar and be employed forever at Charlotte if you recognize her majesty

All wrong. Program not supported financially, coach was not funded well enough to win. Fired because he did not win enough, and that is it.

I heard there were allegations of inappropriate behavior.
